While the details remain vague about what happened, NBC Miami reports that Miami-Dade Police have arrested Ron Dobson, a 27-year-old man in connection with the fatal shooting, who faces a second-degree murder charge. Until this week, Trina had remained mum, but recently took to Instagram to comment on the death of her brother.

First, I would like to thank all of my fans for your ongoing support, and your prayers sent during this time of grieve (grief) for my family. It means the world to me to know that even in my sorrow, I can still smile seeing the support. Thank you to my fellow musical colleagues and to the media who have sent their condolences. Love Trina.

No further details have yet been shared or released.
